I use a program called Volume+ Free. Works pretty well. The free one is capped though at +4 db. If you want to go higher you have to get the paid version.
The full version can be found for free on the developer's website.
Many people have this problem with Android. You can see it has been reported in Android's bug tracking system. The number of levels is controlled by a setting that's compiled into the Android system image.
Use a different ROM
It's possible that flashing a custom-rom could increase the number of levels, but I don't know which, if any, custom ROMs do this. ...
Goto Developer Options, activate the "Disable Absolute Volume" toggle (see screenshot). Disconnect and reconnect your Bluetooth connection. Problem solved.
NOTE: This was done on Android 7.0. You can try on your own OS version.
For me the app Fine Volume Control was the solution.
It does not need root, unfortunately is not free ($ 2.50) but provides a 7 day trial.
However it does a great job: it subdivides the media volume range in 100 steps, allowing a much finer resolution for your volume choice including enabling to shut the volume to almost nothing. In the setting there is ...
There is a possible quick solution, depending on the phone in consideration:
Go to Settings->Sound->Music Effects and depending on the phone, you may by default have an app that controls the music effects within which you should easily find your desired setting.
But if your phone is rooted, a more reliable solution would be to install the music effects app/...
That kind of "Mixer" doesn't seem to be possible. Quoting from the description of App Volume (thanks to Fiksdal for pointing to this comment):
Android manages one stream for all apps, so we can't set different volume levels at same time for two different apps.
So at the very best, you could set different volumes for different apps. Again, there's nothing ...
As far as I know audio amplifying circuits will have a fixed amplifying ratio (gain). By adding resistance (either digitally or using analog POT) on the input (or output?) signal the volume is reduced. Hence in my opinion it can't be done.
Switching over to in ear phone buds like:
instead of: will provide better noise isolation and there by improve ...
Not a software solution, but you could always try an in-line volume control like this:
Amazon: Koss VC20 Volume Control
You can get one on ebay for close to US $1:
ebay search: headphone volume control
Conclusion first: It doesn't really matter as this operation needs almost no power anyway for both ways.
Changing the volume alone has only a minimal affect on the battery given the screen stays off.
Reason: If you listen to music there's already some processing going on and increasing/decreasing volume levels has a very low processing demand (almost none)....
Edit: This app looks worth a go - https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/app-precise-volume-override-androids-t3573562 (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.phascinate.precisevolume)
I ended up using this app on my nexus 4 - supports up to 100 volume levels. Its not perfect but should suffice till they hopefully fix what seems ...
By default the answer is a no.
Since changing the color of notification bar means modifying the system it can't be done by a normal application. Best you can do is an icon that can be added to the notification bar.
But there is a way if you are rooted.
Xposed Framework is a great app that lets users modify every single action executed at system level. You ...
The file does reflect the changes. You need to observe it a bit more carefully.
My little research tells me that in Android 4.2.1, 4.4.2, 5.0.2 and 5.1.1, most of the changes performed in Settings app are saved in an SQLite database of Settings Storage/Providers app, located at /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db.
Some of the ...
Unfortunately, Android and IOS specify different hardware specs for the remote feature. The way the clicks get registered by the devices are not compatible. Sad, but true.
There are very few good solutions that I've found, but I have found a couple. So far, the best I've done is this combination:
Samsung makes earbuds with a mic/remote specifically for ...
I first thought that the OP was asking about modifying the behavior of the sources of the notifications which can be done in with finer levels than before using Notification Categories in Android 8.0 Oreo.
However via the comments, it appears that the OP wants to stop Audio Ducking
from happening in the media player. Unfortunately this is a ...
How do I tell what apps can change the media volume?
I have used aSpotCat in the past so I am recommending it for identifying apps by permission. Install and launch the app → tap on List apps by permission → tap on Misc. permissions → tap on three dots horizontal line icon → search "Change your audio settings".
This would list all the ...
There is an app which can do it for you...
Try the free one first, and if it works, then buy the full version :)
Have a ...
I'd suggest you try llama. Why because its free and its awesome. It can not only handle ring volume but WiFi, mobile data, run apps and many more.
The best thing is it works with Cell Mesh, so you don't have to keep GPS on.
On AOSP Android 6.0 Marshmallow, this feature is integrated into the OS.
From an article on Pocket-lint,
Android 6.0 Marshmallow: Volume controls
One of the places where Lollipop went a little haywire was with the volume and controlling those new notifications. These new fangled volume controls sent ripples across Android devices on Lollipop with ...
I was searching for a way to increase the volume on my phone, before I realized the quietness was because my ear buds needed cleaning. I used an old toothbrush and rubbing alcohol to clean mine. Made everything much louder.
I know this is a really old thread, but I just bought a bluetooth speaker - a CANZ speaker. It sounds great, capturing all wavelength for pure beats, vocal and instrument separation but it is LOUD - on 1. I went into the standard media player and found the settings and tapped advanced. I was able to lower the whole EQ band by band and found a great volume. ...
I will answer your question in the meaning "How can I control both volume and track skip on my Android device from my headphones?". This might not be supported by the system itself, but the Playstore holds a number of solutions available. Depending on your headset and Android device, one of them might work better than the other:
JAYS Headset Control
It appears to be somewhat awkward in ICS and JB to get this functionality, several methods in order to achieve it are discussed here. I'll summarise/copy some of the better sounding ones (I added the links):
Try Audio Control, it's by far the best volume management app in the
Google Play store. There is both a notification and ringer volume for
ICS or ...
You might consider Bluetooth headphones. They sound worse than wired at the same price, but make up for that by not depending on how good the headphone amp in your phone is. Relevantly, the volume and play/pause/next/prev buttons are a standard part of the protocol, so one set of 'phones will work with anything that has Bluetooth.
If you're phone is rooted or you have a custom recovery (like TWRP), this is actually much easier. The only thing you'll have to do, is to add the following line to your build.prop file located in /system:
Where 30 represents the number of steps.
This can be done with a root file explorer (like Root Browser) or via VI in the ...
Probably you were looking for something like Sound Assistant version, for generic Android devices, but as it stands now the former is available and its only functional on Samsung devices (Galaxy editions running latest versions of Android)
The sound utility available on the galaxy series Provides various
